Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
Could you explain a little more about the background please
How old is Jack - and what contact does your son have?
Why does the Uncle not think a Residence Order is enough?
We are indeed - my apologies I have been away from the computer.
Are you aware that the site charges more for a phone call?
Have they given any examples of problems with the decision making?
That is fine.
For clarity - there IS a Residence Order in place?
If he has a Residence Order he can make any and all decisions that need to be made which is why I am curious to understand the reason for this change.
He certainly does not have to be involved in decisions on Scool trips - although he is entitled to know if the child is going abroad
The only difference the SGO will make is that in future if they and your son disagreed about something they can over rule him, and Order will last until the child
is 18 rather than 16. They can also take the child abroad without getting your son's agreement - or even telling him.
Only your son can decide whether this is ok
Please let me know if you need further details
You are very welcome.
It is a very difficult decision - it is probably just my lawyers itch that makes me wonder why!
